A lot of script-driven applications, particularly paid cms, encrypt their files so as to ensure that they won't be reverse engineered or tampered with. The majority of them use an application named ionCube PHP Encoder to do that, so if you buy a paid script and you would like to set it up in a website hosting account, a tool known as ionCube Loader has to be present on the server. Without this, you cannot install the script or in case you somehow manage to do this, it won't function properly since most of the script code will be encrypted to a point where it can't be interpreted. That is why, you need to make sure that ionCube Loader is installed when you get a new website hosting account and you would like to use some paid web application. If you obtain a shared website hosting account and the tool is not present, it can't be added because the whole server PHP environment will have to be compiled again.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud website hosting packages which we provide, so when you need it in order to install and execute a script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you're able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the tool for every new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you are able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you can run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's created on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, which means that you'll be able to install any script application which requires the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of your Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. The change takes effect without delay, so you can go ahead and set up the needed script in your account. If you'd like to change the PHP version that's active for your account, you'll have to enable ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each site hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
